In one of the most remote areas of Utah, and even the entire United States, is one of outdoor enthusiasts' most beloved protected areas: Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The region offers virtually unlimited hiking and backpacking opportunities in unparalleled high desert environments. Thanks to the unique geology of the Colorado Plateau, it offers endless surprises and features for anyone willing to venture off the roads. Features like Upper and Lower Calf Creek Falls and the scenic and remote drive along the Burr Trail only begin to scratch the surface of what's hiding behind the endless sandstone formations.
